I thought we were all in agreement before it even came out. Everyone knows the only fun thing to come from it was being able to bludgeon everything with balls.
Sane non-chuds knew it was shit as soon as the new mons leaked. Retarded bootlickers loved it anyways.
It's another Gen 5 tier game that people want to gaslight into being good.
chuds and probably morons too
you don't know what that word means.
what are you talking about yes you do, the fuck is wrong with you?
didnt mean to but made the correct opinion. both are the best in the series
>jerks off gen 5
>game fails massively and loses several awards
this will never not be hilarious
who cares what a stupid garden gnome thinks?
a other garden gnome
Fuck off Eric. Get a real job.
I knew that in a week
how many time are we going to post the same fucking article by this retard?
Best pokemon game since gen 2.
>implying gen 2 was good
>implying gen 2 was not the absolute peak of the series
It was tho. Lugia is an officially confirmed sex icon of Pokémon franchise.
No. The game is good.
Best Pokemon game since Gen5, I don't give a fuck.
This. It’s no masterpiece but it’s leagues above the bland gen 6, failure of 7 or the absolute train wreck of gen 8
The moment I saw how the boss fights played like I knew the game was bad.
Why are they so quick to attack PLA but not the main series games?
>Can We Finally Admit That Pokemon Legends: Arceus is Bad?
Nah I had a great time sword and shield can eat my ass
what pokemon region is your favorite anon hmm (:
Hoenn of course
watch when legends rayquaza comes out you will change your mind on calling PLA shit then (;
Hoennchads already rejected ORAS. Why would they have an issue rejecting Legends Jirachi?
The only based game journalist
They're a man
Who is "we"?
the guy and his skeleton
You know you people can think for yourself and it just agree with every article you see that gives you confirmation bias right? A game doesn’t have to be bad or good, it could just be okay like PLA
I like it so that makes it good gay
No, but we can admit its good.
>Pokémon: Legends Arceus is a bland game
>with weak mechanics
Never mind, it’s just contrarianism.
I must confess that I have never heard of a bland game with strong mechanics. Why was that the part that made you change your mind?
Not that anon but I found the main mechanic of just running around in an open level and chucking pokeballs at a bunch of pokemon and catching a bunch to be really fun and engaging, but it wasn't enough to sustain the game in the long run and the barren areas, the story and the overall pacing of the game felt lacking and by the end, I was extremely tired of catching everything I saw and just flew by on my braviary the whole time.
yeah as long as can finally admit every pokemon game post-gameboy is even worse
>bland open world that isn’t any fun to traverse through
>boring busy work like catching the same pokemon multiple times
>barely any trainer battles
>no gym leaders or elite four; no drive to become stronger
>THE GAME IS BAD BECAUSE THERE AREN’T SHITTY NPCS YOU CAN EASILY SWEEP WITH A SINGLE POKRMON AND THEY DIDN’T MINDLESSLY COPY/PASTE KANTO’S FORMULA AGAIN WAAAAH
I swear DStards have the shittiest takes imaginable.
>THE GAME IS GOOD BECAUSE THE LAND IS BARREN, I LOVE SHITTY GRAPHICS, EMPTY WORLD AND TERRIBLE HM USING (LOL I LOVE TO USE MY BIRD TO FLY AND MY DEER TO RUN AROUND), AND I LOVE TO DO REPETITIVE TASKS OVER AND OVER TO COMPLETE THE RESEARCH TASKS
Suck a dick.
cry more holy shit you know sword and shield are actual dogshit. PLA is a fun one run and done spin off game. Try harder to come up with excuses as to why it sucks it literally doesnt in comparison to every mainline game since gen 5. sub 100
>AND THEY DIDN’T MINDLESSLY COPY/PASTE KANTO’S FORMULA AGAIN
But they did. And then they removed even more content from it, knowing addicts like you would still consoom and defend it.
I had more fun tracking and catching Pokémon in PLA than I did battling wild route trainers in SW/SH. Pokémon battling should be more fun but it’s become mindless filler. Getting to Stalk a Pokémon and throw the ball at the perfect moment is much more fun, especially when it’s a rare Pokémon.
>there isn't a big arrow telling me what to do AHHHHH SAVE ME ARCEUS I NEED TO BE TOLD WHAT TO DOOO
I don't think it was great, but it certainly wasn't bad. Better than any mainline game that has come out since ORAS.
The Hisuian forms are outright improvements on their originals in terms of design so i'm happy
It's bad, but Sword and Shit IT'S EVEN FUCKING WORSE.
Still better than the dogshit they've put out since BW
>new pokemon mainline game changes up the formula and mechanics
>malding manchildren seethe that real fans enjoy this
PLA is a breath of fresh air if you're not autistic.
Honestly I find it hard for even romhacks to keep me entertained much because it’s all still the same gameplay at the end of the day. Legends is legitimately an interesting take in the franchise and I’d love to see more of it
This, some of us have been playing these games for two decades or more. I'm personally only interested in the games that bring something new to the table at this point. SwSh felt like yet another shitty 3DS game (which are/were just soulless versions of the older games), PLA was refreshing in comparison.
>Its good cause I like it 🙂
>its good cause I had fun playing it (:
>Its good cause its different
>Its good cause I don't like jrpgs but love the pokemon IP
The lack of objectivity on this board is shameful.
It's good because it's different is a objective reason when it comes to mainline pokemon games where every game is the same song and dance (get a starter, battle rival, meet evil team, become champion, etc.). It's more focused around catching pokemon, the story is alot different compared to every single mainline game and the battle/catching mechanics are alot different and more involved and dynamic. Someone who's an actual overall fan of pokemon and plays the mainline games in general would enjoy this game
>It's good because it's different is a objective reason
You add nothing to the conversation
And your usefulness is being a pseud in a transient thread on an anonymous board?
>I too can spout bullshit
Game is fun = good game
Game isn't fun = bad game
Easy as that
who are you quoting, schizoid?
>Its bad cause there aren't npcs standing behind the pokemon 🙁
>it's bad because they didn't mindlessly slap gyms and the elite 4 in the game again 🙁
>it's bad because I can actually explore instead of being forced down hallways 🙁
>it's bad because it's not like my childhood games 🙁
Cry more, retarded bitchboy.
>>it's bad because they didn't mindlessly slap gyms and the elite 4 in the game again 🙁
the funniest part is that the retards who whine about this are probably the same smoothbrains who whine about kanto pandering
Arceus was great, what is wrong with you people? It's the cleanest and most enjoyable nu-pokemon era mainline game yet, just compare it to BDSP, the difference is astounding, the amount of things P:LA had going for it is way more fun and effortful than the slop that was being released before.
>Arceus was great, what is wrong with you people?
we play RPGs other than pokemon so we know how shit pokemon games are. Just as an example, Xenoblade 3 looks better, plays better, and does the exploration thing better than Arceus. even new pokemon snap does Arceus better than Arceus.
>just compare it to BDSP, the difference is astounding
comparing a turd to a less smelly turd doesn't make the first turd smell of roses
So you're saying you play better RPGs than pokemon, but you still play pokemon mainline games, and you have a bone to pick with PLA? That doesn't make any sense. Are you as critical with other mainline games? I doubt it.
>Are you as critical with other mainline games?
yes. there literally hasn't been a good game since Emerald. The moment they realized pokemania wasn't gonna die after the game boy color was when the franchise began its downwards spiral
>I doubt it.
>there literally hasn't been a good game since Emerald.
Then why are you here?
pokegirl lewds and baiting retards such as (You)
>baiting retards such as (You)
That was literally my first post in this thread, but great "bait"
your bait sucks go somewhere deadbeat coomer
why are you so scared of a better game, anon?
Seriously, you need meds.
it's objectively better that SwShit and LAss in every measurable aspect
>calling others weebs
>in a vietnamese basket weaving board
you need to go back.
So you really do need meds. I suggest you take risperidone or ziprasidone.
I suggest you take estrogen, looney chud
I bet you xenoblade coomers wouldn't ever survive playing through legends arceus the alphas are more stronger than your mid xeno bosses and mid enemies (:
if it's better why doesnt it sell more? checkmate
xenoblade tard detected eww
its a game where the journey is the game not the destination.
that and the graphics are shitty as well as additional features.
i would only recommend this game to other people who enjoy the franchise. this game should not be someone's first pokemon game.
PLA is the game psychologists use to prove that the human brain would rather feel harm than utter boredom
Also why do gay bloggers (and you) have to ask permission from an imaginary group before making up their minds?
shut up BDSPchuds, everyone knows PLA was better than the pile of shit you're shilling so hard
oh no not the xenobladekeks
>oh no not the people with better taste
literally brainwashed by masuda
Xenoblade 1 and 2 are utter garbage. 3 is the only good one
omfg can you annoying xenoblade yards be consistent for once are you gonna shit on the franchise or are you gonna defend it you can't do both pick one -_-
PLA is kino.
it's the only good Pokemon game in at least a decade, and the only good 3D Pokemon game since the GameCube
I actually agree with these but "good if you're an obsessive pokemon nerd" isn't "good"
I got a list of problems with the game that dont boil down to muh formula but its still better than 96% of mainline
What’s the other 4%?
oh no not the free (You)'s
My biggest gripe with the game was the size of it's dex. There are enough ghost and other common pokemon that there didn't need to just be driftlooms everywhere at night.
After a bit you're always seeing the same pokemon unless you find some corner/grove/oasis that has a unique.
still better than that shit of SwoShi
It's pathetic that it took almost an entire fucking year for people to timidly start to admit that the worst mainline Pokemon game ever was, in fact, bad. Just in time to shill the new product too (how convenient).
>Overwatch Was Better With Loot Boxes
what the fuck?
It was though. Now you pay for a battle pass or pay like $40 for skins several years old.
Paying $0 for skins is better than paying $20 for skins, yes.
too bad you had to pay 40$ for skins in OW1
I paid $40 for the entire game in OW1. Is Blizzard saying two (2) skins are worth an entire game?
>Is Blizzard saying two (2) skins are worth an entire game?
Yes + battle pass
i don't have to do it, i said it from the start, glad that some retards finally understand
Say how do I deny journos the pageviews again?
demand people make archives
Literally the only thing good about Legends Arceus was the fact it wasn't the same exact game sharted out the past 20 years. If it were branded as a Digimon or Yokai Watch Game people would tear it the fuck apart.
That goes for regular Pokemon too, The games have gotten so stale and mediocre that they're glorified shovelware. The only thing Pokemon has going for it's Pokemon.
It's the only good game Game Freak has put out since BW2
bw2 wasn't good
Okay, neat, glad you let me know
show mercy gen 5 fan most folks in this board didn't play the gen 5 games yet they don't know the power that's inside
I did play gen 5, that's why I think it's not good
x doubt quit lying while your ahead anon and save yourself the embarrassment
You earned my Reddit Gold!
Everything Sinnoh-related fucking sucks
PLA will always be good because my wife Sneasler is in it.
Every issue people have with this game is unironically a skill issue.
hey eric maybe if you keep posting it it'll come true
no i won't agree with anything that gay says
I still stand by the same words as during release: It's the best damn game carrying the pokemon name since Gold and Silver.
And that still doesn't mean it's a masterpiece, anyone who plays literally anything else would know that. Far from it. Just that pokemon has sucked for a long, long time.
Is it worth a try, or should I just watch vids about the story? I already have all of the Legends mom's in my living sex, even the two different forms for Enamorus.
It's a tech demo for a possibly good game (Scarlet/Violet???) but it was never good taken by itself, which only made the extremely positive reviews even more baffling. Seems like most game journos aren't even attempting to justify the scores they give pokemon games, I always see shit like "it's dated, looks shit, etc BUT IT'S DA BEST POKEMON GAME IN 5EVA!!!! 8.5/10 DA NEXT ONE WILL BE REALLY GOOD I SWEAR"
A game can still be good in spite of some glaring flaws, not everything is black and white.
if every pokemon game was Black and White the franchise would be so much better
>Game Freak makes the same game over and over
UNCREATIVE AND LAZY AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
>Game Freak changes up the formula
RUINED THE CORE GAMEPLAY AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

local redditor figures out Ganker is more than 1 perssn
>Ganker is more than 1 person
but anon what if we could have both of best worlds tho ):
>I'm hip and cool because I hate it
It's by far the best game since HG/SS.
I loved it.
The only thing that was shit were the graphics.
>xenovirgin still assblasted
assblasted? I'm having a ball baiting poketards and enjoying much, much better games. Masuda will never put his bug in your anus, so you can stop shilling. Wait, it's not even shilling because you do it for free.
They are so assblasted, they are too embarrassed to go to Ganker and start lurking in Ganker instead
wow are they really that scared that scavio is gonna be shit that they have to launch an anti-shilling campaign against the game they were shilling months ago?
Thanks for the (You)'s xenobabies, like taking a candy from a baby
Can we finally accept that the dex cut was the right thing to do?
No, all it means is that the shillmons will get shilled harder.
PLA is just a fun spinoff game, i dont get the need to autistically debate which is better between it and the mainline, no one is comparing conquest of rangers to the mainline.
>The game is visually lacking...like all pokemon games
>it's a fun new take on catching, catching alphas is far more satisfying that most random trainer battles
>exploring the land is kino
>most of the (optional)side quest are ass
>the battle system is weak and shallow but it's not the main focus, almost feels like it's there out of obligation
>after postgame, there isnt much else to do and that's fine, as it's just a single player 1 and done game with little replay value
Ranger is goated and i would say better than some mainline games.
>it's a spin-off as it doesn't slavishly rehash genwun
I see zoomies get scared when tradition gets fucked out the window and they have scramble to gatekeep.
I liked pla for doing something new in nearly 20 years. I stopped playing mainlines after gen 6 and pla's exploration is what brought back some interest in the series because gen9 looks like it's taking some notes from pla
lol. lmao, even
damn it anon what pokemon gen was your favorite then ):
PLA is a mainline game dummy
>IT'S GOOD SO ITS DIFFERENT!!! THATS ALL THERE IS TO IT!! STOP CRITICIZING ABOUT THE LAST JEDI AND FRIDAY PART 9 ALREADY AND JUST BE THANKFUL YOU GOT A NEW PRODUCT!!!
How do we fix zoomers?
I had my 3 hours of fun with it. Thanks to emulation and pokehex. A 3/10 game is a game worth playing if you can avoid 70% of it relatively easily.
Why does PLA make shills seethe so much? I
discorders are counter culture + genuine masuda formula addicts
It's the a different pokemon game in nearly 20 years and/or they're genuine genwunners that hate something that goes out the kantooo formula. Remember when these idiots thought alola was different for having not-gyms?
They're the ones that make it harder for the games to consider being different r experimental with the mainline games
Retarded take, there are other beloved games outside of the main storyline. PLA is just fucking shit.
stantlercucks are mad that nobody like the non canon regional evolution of their favorite shitmon
People with skill issues are unironically mad that they have to aim for .25 seconds.
It's literal tech demo tier. There's definitely an interesting game loop in there, it's just barely expanded upon.
Was easily the most fun I’ve had playing the main game of any pokemon game in a while. Even the dream battle facility was a cool idea and beating it was fun. Will likely never play it again but enjoyed every bit of it
Never bought it, looked empty as fuck.
>boot up PLA to hunt more shiny pokemon
>realize SV will look even worse
How the fuck do they think this is acceptable visual quality when witcher 3, doom eternal, bayonetta and ac exist on the same platform?
God, I fucking hate these sorts of headlines, no, the entire writing style really. Who is "we", you stupid morongay, and which person on Earth has ever pretended to like PLA when they actually didn't? The piece is trying to manipulate reader perception by being fake-companionable right out of the gate and doing so is extremely typical for the 30-something generation of writers and "journalist". What gives?
best game since gen 4
Good game, shit graphics. It's an 8/10 which automatically makes it one of the best mainline pokemon games of all time since most of them are mediocre or shit
